Girl In Snow


SCROLL DOWN

Girl In Snow


WHO ARE YOU WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING?

When a beloved high schooler named Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched—not the boy who loved her too much; not the girl who wanted her perfect life; not the officer assigned to investigate her murder. In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three indelible characters—Cameron, Jade, and Russ—must each confront their darkest secrets in an effort to find solace, the truth, or both. In crystalline prose, Danya Kukafka offers a brilliant exploration of identity and of the razor-sharp line between love and obsession, between watching and seeing, between truth and memory.

Compulsively readable and powerfully moving, Girl in Snow offers an unforgettable reading experience and introduces a singular new talent in Danya Kukafka.

From its startling opening line right through to its stunning conclusion, Girl in Snow is a perfectly paced and tautly plotted thriller. Danya Kukafka’s misfit characters are richly drawn, her prose is both elegant and eerie—this is an incredibly accomplished debut.
— Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train and Into the Water
A sensational debut— great characters, mysteries within mysteries, and page-turning pace. Highly recommended.
— Lee Child, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Jack Reacher novels
An exciting debut from a talented new voice. Girl in Snow is a propulsive mystery set in a suburban community marked by unsettling voyeurism. Danya Kukafka patiently reveals layers of her characters’ inner lives—their ugliness and vulnerabilities—in prose that sparkles and wounds. I couldn’t put this one down.
— Brit Bennett, New York Times Bestselling Author of THE MOTHERS
There is a frightful truth to Danya Kukafka’s characterizations, and the mystery at the heart of Girl in Snow is so elegantly constructed. It’s an exceptional, unnerving debut novel. I’m already counting the days until her next one.
— Owen King, author of the novel Double Feature and co-author of Sleeping Beauties
Girl in Snow is a haunting, lyrical novel about love, loss, and terror. Reading it felt like entering another world, where things—and people—were not as they at first appeared. The world Kukafka so masterfully creates is suspenseful and electrifying; I was willing to follow her wherever she took me.
— Anton DiSclafani, New York Times bestselling author of The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls and The After Party
